This week was interesting, to say the least. From Tuesday to Thursday we had MAP testing (imagine computerized standardized testing). That took up most of the week’s time, so we didn’t have any science class except on Monday, which was sad. MAP testing is very weird sometimes giving people questions they don’t even understand (that was me on the math test). Even though the testing took up much of day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, we still had math every day. The MAP test really ruined our week’s schedule.
On Monday we had the grandparents and special friends lunch which was very fun. Before the event, the cast and crew got to help set up tables. At the end of the lunch, the cast of the musical performed a few songs from the musical. The crew also got to stay and listen to the songs. In social studies, we learned about the different forms of government in ancient Greece. During this, we lived out those forms of government by listening to songs and we decided those songs by the type of government. For instance, when we learned about monarchy, Izzy was the queen, I was was the prince. Izzy chose a song, then we pretended she died and I became king and I chose a song. On Friday, we had a silly string fight with the Ms. O, Mrs. Pierson, Mrs. Hawk, and Mr. Meaux. I scared the living daylights out of Mrs. Hawk with only an empty can of silly string.
